AC Milan’s head coach, Stefano Pioli, has addressed the press on the eve of a crucial match against Empoli.
Pioli openly discussed the future of player Krunic. He said, “At this moment, for him and for us, it is better that he is looking for another team. It’s not true that he pushed himself out, it is me who made choices because I saw that his performance was not the same as before.” These statements were made during an official press conference, as reported by Milan News 24.
This rather candid insight from the coach suggests that the decision was driven by performance considerations, with Pioli proactively clarifying that Krunic’s current status is not a result of any self-generated conflict from the player.
